Art + Artisan Olive Oil

generate_thumbs-1php1Save the date for an evening of art and artisan olive oil celebrating the major American painter, Morris Graves. Next Saturday night, March 20th, from 4pm until 7pm, McEvoy Ranch is sponsoring an opening reception for the upcoming show, The Visionary Art of Morris Graves, at San Francisco's Meridian Gallery. Inspired by Graves' mystical view of nature, we'll be providing seasonal hors d'oeuvres from our biodynamic gardens in Petaluma.generate_thumbs-2php1 Morris Graves (1910 - 2001) was a largely self-taught artist closely associated with the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. His paintings, often small works on paper, were among the earliest to synthesize Eastern aesthetics and philosophy with the American Transcendental tradition. In his own words, Graves was working "to evolve a changing language of symbols, a language with which to remark upon the qualities of our mysterious capacities which direct us toward ultimate reality." generate_thumbs-3phpThe Visionary Art of Morris Graves will be on exhibit from March 20th until May 20th, 2010 and several of Graves' works will be available for purchase. We look forward to seeing you at the reception. Meridian Gallery 535 Powell Street, San Francisco; 415 398 7229.
